@panterapeach: I don’t have any questions ATM (my chart is looking pretty normal this month), but thank you for this!  I usually scrutinize my chart so, so closely, and it’s nice to have a sounding board here 🙂

Did I remember right that you just started charting?  How’s it going?

I don’t chart BUT I have had lots of questions about it so I’ll definitley be watching this thread.

I’m actually kinda scared to just b/c I don’t want to get overwhelmed with it… watching days, counting numbers,… with some of the TTC threads it scares me that I’ll freak out and get discouraged if “it” doesn’t happen right away… sigh

Hopefully by some of the answers I feel better about starting and starting TTC here soon =)

No questions yet, but this is a great idea!  I just started charting this month and am almost halfway though my cycle.  I thought I would share my experience so far though…

I was a little wary of charting to begin with b/c I thought it would take all of the fun out of baby-making.  I definitely didn’t want to tell my husband about charting b/c I figured he would think it was super un-romantic and not sexy.  Well… turns out I was wrong.  I showed him my FF chart the other day after he started asking about it, and he got super into it.  He likes the graphs and all of the information that you can store.  But what he really likes is the column marked “BD”.  He now sees that column as “his responsibility” on my chart, and he’s on a mission to fill up that column with “X”s.  This is the first time I’ve seen him really excited about getting me pregnant.  Before this I think he was still pretty freaked out by the idea of becoming a parent… even though he was definitely on board.

I have been charting since last July. I’m no expert but I have good success. Let me know if I can help. Charting is such an empowering experience and taught me so much about my body. I strongly encourage it for TTC

@panterapeach:  thank you so much for setting this up!  I am glad to have a place to use my charting knowledge, since it sure isn’t getting me KU…

@panterapeach: I bought a better thermometere after 1 cycle and it totally made my chart easier to understand. I think the old one was reading funny, and it was super discouraging.

I’m finally starting to hit my stride with charting, I’ve got 3 full months under my belt now and I’m really starting to understand my body. I also think we did a pretty good job this month of BDing at the right time!

I’m a FF user as well, just so that no matter where I am I can log on and dump in my temps and not have to worry about saving them or writing them down.

I’m about 2dpo right now so we’ll see what comes of it all in a few weeks. I’m going to visit my BFF who is just 7ish weeks pregnant with her first, so I’m hoping some of her baby dust rubs off and I’ll share it all with you ladies!! 😛
